    Compass calibration

    Is there some way to calibrate the magnetometer? Any app that makes use of the compass is somewhere greater than 90 degrees off. It places the North pointer somewhat south of due east, and this seems fairly consistent between apps.

    Old thread, so forgive the bump, but this came up on the top of my Google search, so I am sure others will find it as well. My droid was off about 60 degrees. I was drawing figure 8's in a horizontal plane to calibrate it with no success. Then I found this video and it worked right away. Make the figure 8's on the vertical plane, as if you were drawing them on a chalk board
